Positioned in an idyllic spot in the heart of nature, this property completely blends into the environment and tends to make the most out of what nature has to offer. North Carolina based Platt Architecture have beautifully integrated the constructing into the geometry and geography of the internet site. Like a bridge, the house begins on one bank of the tiny river, then crosses it with a structure perched on stone pillars and comes down again on the other bank, creating a quite original living space. The two extremities of the bridge and the stone pillars root the property to the ground like a giant tree in a secular forest. These two sides go up on two floors and include the evening/private parts of the home, while the bridge structure is occupied by the day/ communal locations where everybody can take pleasure in the view and the sound of the river. The supplies contribute strongly in producing the residence a single with the internet site. The structure of the residence is created in wood and painted in the identical colour as the trunks of the surrounding trees, and the pillars are made of river stones which look picked from the river bed and piled up to sustain the bridge. The interior follows the identical principle, and the overall atmosphere is warm and cozy with wooden floors, exposed wooden roof structure, wooden beams and stone walls. The interior decoration is traditionally gorgeous. There is a harmonious mix of wooden pieces and upholstered ones, spiced up by excellent wall art and decorative lamps and objects.
The bridge part of the property has massive windows on both sides, and the light circulates freely through it, while the river flows freely beneath it.There are different sitting places that permit for diverse points of view. On 1 side there is a balcony exactly where 1 can sit and get pleasure from the sounds of nature.
The fireplace is constructed in a stone clad structure, and it dominates the living area on one side. Around it the living space appears as cozy as it gets with comfortable fabric sofas, armchairs and ottomans.
On the opposite end of the bridge from the fireplace there is the kitchen, with cabinets created in knotty brown essence wood with granite worktops. Adding to the traditional feel of the interior style, some of the high cabinets have glass doors to display the tableware in a quite decorative manner. Industrial seeking pendant lamps hang from the exposed wooden roof and give light for the kitchen island. The dining area begins the transition towards the living space, with a massive round wooden table surrounded by comfy fabric upholstered chairs.
Stone walls appear here and there and a lot of emphasis is set on the decoration. Colorful abstract and figurative wall art can be discovered all over the residence, as well as table lamps with vibrant colored ceramic bases.
The interior woodwork is gorgeous and the reddish-brown essence brings in a lot of warmth. Wood is omnipresent, from ceiling to floor, via the remarkable spiral staircase.
